    Used to fish this spot from shore. Finally got around to tubing it. Easy launch from foot of Bessemer St. Did a long loop to the marina on the right to the one on the left. Slow bite. Very slow. Started with one of the bucktails I tied a while back. It looks like it was tied by a monkey, but looked better in the water. Good enough to fool a couple of spotties.

    Switched to ScorcherZ for the second species of the day. 20210606_180342.jpg
    Yes, I did eventually get a couple decent ones.

    Next one got all the kinks outta the line. It tapped the bait a couple times...I dragged it a couple feet to see if the spotty would come back and it nearly took the rod outta my hand when it took off in a straight line. Definitely not a spotty...but I knew what it was after about ten seconds...took about ten minutes to tire it out and drag it alongside. Don't wanna slide one of these up on your lap.

    Managed a few more spotties. Biggest was 14 inches even. Never found a batch of 'em. Ended the day with 11 bass and one ray.
    The bite wasn't on today...but will try this spot again.
    Nice hardpacked beach, no quicksand or slimy spots and street parking is abundant in the a.m.

    I have always done better at the slimy quicksand launch spots.

    Back in the day used to soak shrimp for bass, croaker, rays, guitarfish, various perch, mackerel and an occasional bonefish from this area. I will be back...
